We moved from wet/cold/miserable winters in the Midwest of the US to sunny Tucson, Arizona (desert!) back in 1978.
Never regretted the move. As we like to brag: we can ride 13 months out of the year!
Agree some of our temps have been a bit extreme and set a couple records so far in 2013: a low of 18 degrees Fahrenheit and then a high of 94 degrees this week with 2% humidity.
Summers can be 'warm' . . . 100 to 110 F is not unusual, for up to 30 days in the summer.
This year also had snow (our 4th time in 35 years), a bit of rain, lotsa wind . . . OK, so no place is perfect, but this is close!
Riding tandem today with friends and loads of wildflowers a-blooming!
Send you some of our excess sunshine!
Pedal on!
